New Movie Limitless

"Limitless" is about a struggling writer who takes a pill and then acquires super human intellectual power. My impression is that there is a whole slew of people who think they can increase their quality of life by taking Ritalin, or for that matter Provigil. As for Provigil, there are many people who seem to believe that Provigil has no side effects. As if the scientists at Cephalon invented a pill with no side effects! I run into people who think you can just take a pill and game the system. It drives me up the wall!
The movie looks like it might very well be a good and entertaining movie. But on the other hand, it might also reinforce the misguided preconceived notions that so many people seem to have about drugs like Ritalin and Provigil.

Um, this movie is not about stimulants at all. It explores the fact that we, as humans, only use a portion of our brain capacity. The pill he takes actually expands his ability to use his entire brain, rather than a portion of it.
Actually the statement that we only use 10% of our brains is a very common and wrong misconception...I believed it for years until thorough research proved me wrong.
